Aristotle on His Predecessors: Being the First Book of His Metaphysics


Aristotle On His Predecessors: Being The First Book Of His Metaphysics is a book written by A. E. Taylor that focuses on Aristotle's examination of the philosophical ideas of his predecessors. The book is a translation and commentary on the first book of Aristotle's Metaphysics, which is often referred to as the ""Alpha"" book. In this book, Aristotle discusses the ideas of earlier philosophers such as Thales, Anaximander, and Pythagoras, and evaluates their theories on the nature of reality, causation, and the principles of being. Taylor's commentary provides insights into Aristotle's thought process and his contribution to the development of metaphysics as a discipline. The book is suitable for students of philosophy, as well as anyone interested in the history of Western thought and the evolution of philosophical ideas.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
